2019-20 Kindergarten Registration Starts Soon

Is your child turning five on or before Dec. 31, 2019? If so, it’s almost time to register for kindergarten.

Kindergarten registration opens for the 2019-20 school year on Feb. 1, 2019.

Starting school is an exciting time, for both children and parents. Although exciting, it can also be daunting if you don’t have the information you need. To help, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible for Brentwood Elementary families.

Focus on Family

At Brentwood, we welcome all family members into the classroom on a daily basis and for our many special events celebrating family throughout the year.

The Kindergarten agendas enhance the partnership between parents and teachers and strengthen the Home-School connection.

Progress reports, parent/teacher interviews and student-led interviews all help to keep parents informed and involved in their child's education.

We encourage families to learn together through our homework assignments sent home once a month and our L.I.F.T (Literacy is a Family Thing) program that promotes literacy at home.
